Re: American Indians look to high court

They won't win! Are they going to take the Cleveland Indians to the Supreme Court? The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office panel ruled in their favor of Redskin's in 1999. The 7 have been handed a series of defeats from judges who ruled that the plaintiffs waited too long to bring their suit .

If it was another city outside Washington D.C. maybe!

Re: American Indians look to high court

This is statutory rather than constitutional issue and on that ground they have no chance in hell of winning. They would be lucky if the Supreme Court accepts the case.

I dont think the group will win this one but I do think its only a matter of time until the Redskins change their name & logo.

Will the Fighting Irish change theirs? Redskin's should keep logo ... What will be their new political correct name? The RedStorm.

Actually this is a different 7. Young people filed so that they can respond that they weren't born in time to file previously, as a way of getting around the "waiting too long" judgment.

Re: American Indians look to high court

My understanding is that they want the Redskins trademark, which was issued in 1967, canceled.

Anyone can use the name Redskins and Logo (i.e. mattyk will be able to use the domain name redskinswarpath.com SmootSmack is free to make Redskins jerseys in his basement without consequence).

Right, and it's not like the Washington Redskins won't be allowed really to continue as the Redskins. Just that their trademark will be diluted, as I understand it

Re: American Indians look to high court

Thing is they think they can prove the term "Redskin" is .....slander ....a racist saying.Do I agree no and will be the first to say that sometimes things are carried to far but with that said ...lets not forget the Court is now different to ethnic case's then it once was(get my point).
If I was was Dan I do it.....look at all the money people would spend in 2 different ways.

1) Buy up as much old Redskin memorabilia as possible!

2) People will buy the hell out of the new stuff!

Snyder already owns trademarks on Warriors I believe. Just in case.

We're not the Giants...I'd like to think we're more creative than that.
